    file copy problem

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad 2 Tablet. But I am having trouble with copying to my microSD drive. I have a Sandisk 64GB microSD card with exFAT formatting. When I write to it from the desktop, the files do not work. For example, when copying a video file from the desktop or the USB drive to the microSD drive, the file does not play. The bitrate information is missing. The .exe files do not open and the music files do not play. The files appear to be copied though.

    If I take the microSD card and plug it into my Windows 7 desktop, it will copy fine. Then plug it back into the tablet and it shows up okay.

    I have reformatted the drive and refreshed the OS on the table. I have even sent it back to Lenovo to be checked. There is nothing wrong with the system.

    Not really sure what to do. It does not appear to be a hardware issue but I cannot figure out where to start with a software fix. I posted it on the Lenovo forum site thinking I had a fix, but do not.

    Thank you in advance.

    Maybe try uninstalling the drivers for the microSD and delete them. Then let Windows rediscover it and install drivers from the internet.
